****PRICE IS FOR THE BOAT 1-6PPL (NOT PER PERSON)**** We will meet you at your designated time at our dock at River Noire Yacht Club. There we will introduce you to the Captain and First Mate as well as give you a run down of the boat - we fish a fully loaded 31 Tiara! We will take a nice river tour including passing under the South Haven Famous Drawbridge on our way to Lake Michigan. We will then run out to the fishing grounds and set a large combination of trolling fishing rods and tackle, including planer boards, diver rods, and downrigger rods. Then the fun begins! As we tango with fish, we will teach out you how to reel in your fish and the best technique for success. We fish for salmon (King, coho, and steelhead) as well as lake trout. Once fishing time has expired, or your limit catch has been caught, we will head back to the slip, stopping to take photos with your catch as time allows. Then, once back at the slip, the Captain/FirstMate will fillet your fish and you will be on your way with fish for your grill and stories for a life time!
